MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue (a project of Community Initiatives)
June 16, 2013

I knew of MickaCoo through a friend who volunteers for the organization. I love hearing her tales of her fosters and the work they do. I've followed them on Facebook for quite some time. I'm the crazy cat lady, having 16 cats at home. Imagine my surprise when God saw fit to drop a lost/emaciated racing pigeon in my campsite in the mountains, far from anywere pigeons would normally be.

Speaking with Jill (my friend who volunteers) proved to be invaluable information and she quickly introduced me to Elizabeth and Zoe. These women, through the blessing of social media and across 3000 miles, talked me off the ledge and helped me rescue this baby.

I'm sure this beautiful racer would have met her fate had she flown 1/2 mile further and ended up inside the boundary of the Great Smoky Mtns. These wonderful ladies steered me in the right direction as to what to feed, how to provide water, how to secure her cage since she's outside, etc.

She was lonely though. And these ladies even went so far as to help me rescue another pigeon not far from me that had met with the same fate...fell from the sky. They helped arrange transport to get him to me. He now also resides on my back deck. They are wonderful.

I don't live anywhere close to where they are. In fact, I'm in the eastern part of TN. But these women reached out to the crazy cat lady, 3000 miles away, and provided more information that I could ever have asked for.

I have two beautiful thriving pigeons now that would have otherwise died. I feel knowledgeable and able to care for them. And I love having these women to reach out to for even the simplest of answers to this otherwise novice bird person.
